Why the Dark Days May be Over

Recommended Posts

Pretty sure once we won 5 games and our percentage was north of 70, the dark days were over....

Agreed, the 'dark days' were over once we had two season each with better win tallies than we previous would've managed in three seasons combined.

Now we're looking to make the good times roll in. The really, really good times.

The league is perfectly positioned for a team with stars on every line to take it by the scruff of the neck and dominate for an extended period. One with the quality of Brisbane in the early 2000s or Hawthorn and Geelong more recently. It’s a vacancy waiting and pleading to be filled.

When you have the depth that runs deep and injury free the results  come with it. Over my time I would look to our top 10 players and match them against the other clubs without being biased and IMO i struggled to find between 5 to 7. However l now believe we have at least 15 without hesitation. Hopefully the bad times have left us.

Equally the competition is very capable of chewing up and spitting out the masticated remains of sides that think they are close to greatness, but don't quite have what it takes.  Just ask the Saints, Giants, Bombers, Bulldogs, Pies, Blues and Dockers teams of the past decade.  No mercy Demons, it's a brutal comp and our beloved team will need everything going our way for once to claim the ultimate prize.

...but surely after over half a century of trial and tribulations, the footy gods can be on our side for once?

I'm curious as to whether they approached anyone from the club for comment. That they got quotes from Beamer and Ox and ran with it as a 'story' is a bit odd.

Maybe they approached the club and got shot down. If that is so, I'm happy in a strange way. It shows those within are not inclined to pump their own tyres up and get ahead of themselves.

Great song. Seeing the old warriors makes me emo. If we won a granny I'd cry tears of joy.

All I can see is Brisbane 2001- 2003.

hopefully our back flanks don't turn out to be serial whingers.
